Don't you think HubPages should be a HTTP Secure??

    Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) has a number benefits in terms of security of a website that process sensitive data and information like HubPages. Moreover; search engines such as Google today may use https as among the ranking signals. Don't you think a revenue sharing site with Amazon and eBay products like HubPages needs to have a HTTP Secure URL???

      The login seems to be secure, just tired sniffing the traffic while I logged in and got nothing.

    I don't understand it, but from what I do understand, I would think No since buyers are not actually buying from HP, but directly from Amazon or Ebay.

    I've heard the same thing about Google, but AFAIK few ad networks support SSL, and showing mixed content (secure with unsecure, such as ads) will make the visitor's browser throw a warning.

    If HubPages' advertisers actually can serve ads over SSL, then it probably could be done without too much of a fuss.
